How Do I Deal With the Idea of Being Chronically Ill?

Anonymous asks, quote:

I’m very new to the idea that I have chronic illnesses and pain disorders. I still don’t know how to get a diagnosis that tells me what’s actually wrong, even though I’ve been in pain for a year. I’ve been to so many doctors that are very confused. But once you get a diagnosis, how do you deal with the fact that you’ll deal with it for the rest of your life?
